Meowy Cats Mess from your household to mine!
It’s always a meowy cat’s mess around here, especially on “Merry Christmas” morning. I’ll bet you can’t guess what inspired this!
This is a linoleum block print I designed to use for my 1996 holiday card. Busy little stylized kitties in spots, stripes and solids climb and run through the words. Fitting for my studio!
I print on both cream and brown kraft cover stock with red and green inks for Christmas, but I also print on various cover stocks and inks for all year round. I sell these as limited edition greeting cards, framed prints and wood-mounted art.
You can read more about how I created it, and how it was so healing to me to create something humorous in the autumn of 1997 in my Featured Artwork post.
In addition to this, to celebrate the season I’ve added a slideshow of all my holiday card designs, feline, avian, nature, street scenes and otherwise. I’ve been roaming the trails, woods and streets with my camera and art materials as well as my home and back yard, and each year I design another set or two of holiday cards from my favorite photos and paintings. I’m sure you’ll find something here no matter what holiday you may be celebrating this time of the year. Enjoy!
